of over 150,000 american men and women in my hands. i don't want to make a mistake. i'm human, and i recognize that i might. and i worry about that. regardless of the outcome, if when this whole thing is over i can say to myself, you gave it your best shot, then that's got to be enough. >> good morning. it's he friday, december 28th. on set with us the co-host of "sfreet signs" is brian sullivan who just showed up here. president of the national action network is rev raend al sharpton and fortune editor lee gallagher in washington, vice president and executive director of msnbc.com. that was general norman swa schwartzkopf you saw on your screen who passed away yesterday. i have a lasting memory of general schwartzkopf who served in the war in vietnam as well as leading gulf storm one. there was a woman from iowa. her name was peg mullen. she wrote a book about the death of her son, michael mullen. the name of the book was "friendly fire." norman schwartzkopf was the battalion commander. he was so approachable to peg mullen, so human in his relations with peg mullen, who sought to fi
in the interview this morning. he has a very ambitious second-term agenda. i don't know how he gets it done when they can't get the basic things done over the budget. these philosophical differences over taxes and spending remain. they are more entrenched. this is what i think changed. i think a second-term president obama will work harder to jam up the republicans, not to confuse them or lure into compromise but to put more political pressure on them to expose their divisions and internal discord. whether that creates leverage, we'll see. his relationship with congress has been very difficult. his view is that he doesn't have a legitimate partner. how do you get something done on immigration? on medicare reform, and gun control legislation, which the president says is a priority which requires a great deal of political help? it seems to be shorter than four years, in what the president can do in a time period before mid-term elections. >> a lot of things on the agenda. thanks, again. you can see david's entire interview with president obama this morning on "meet the press." >>> good morning, je

attention on to me and my colleagues the past few weeks is they don't have a plan of their own that could get bipartisan support. the so-called senate bill the majority leader refers to passed with only democratic votes. despite his repeated calls for the house to pass it, he snows knows as well as i do, it can't happen. senate so there's nothing for the house to vote on. as i pointed out july 25th. democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of that's what i said july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time, we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and if democrats were really serious, they had proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires, and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called senate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. let's put that talking point aside. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up
will have a strong economy if we continue to punish people who produce and somehow reward people who don't. and we have also had a foreign policy that is supposed to make a stronger and more respected, but it hasn't worked out either. let's just put it this way. if that is flexibility, we all better learn to be very flexible the next four years. earlier this month susan rice withdrew her name from consideration from post of secretary of state. that's after strong opposition to her potential nomination. republicans were critical of her after she went on five different sunday news shows. she gave this explanation for the terrorist attacks that killed four americans in benghazi, libya on september 11th. >> the best assessment we have is that in fact this was not a pre planned, premeditated attack. what happened initially was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. it was a consequence of the video that people gathered outside the embassy, and then it grew very violent. those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons which unfortunately are quite co
marshal comes and says it's a fire hazard. >> there are superstitions. people feel if you don't take it down right away or after christmas or right after new year's, you're dragging your old into the new year. the old baggage. got to get rid of the garbage. >> i'm bringing my baggage into the new year, tree or no tree. dried out or not. >> speaking of the new year, our take two new year's eve traditions and superstitions. we're talking about taking the tree down. let's talk new year's eve. traditions around the world include central and south america, a lot of people wear special underwear to ring in the new year. >> in brazil, they wear white and brand new underwear. i guess you want to start things off right. start fresh. >> i can sign on to this tradition. okay. don't get a close-up on me. i'm for new underwear. okay. what else? >> let's go to denmark, perhaps. people jump off chairs in unison at midnight. that's to rid people of negative spirits from the previous year. >> all right. >> good one. >> spain, natalie, you know about this one. we're going to show it. >> we're going to

injuries. >> you doughnut -- don't think about tornadoes in winter weather. how unusual is it? >> they're rare but they happen in december. the system was huge. it affected the whole southeast region. what was unique about it, it affected every part of the region differently. some areas were drenched with torrential rain, others with flash floods and powerful winds that skipped across the region. trees and power lines are on the ground leaving debris in the roadway and the stormy conditions as we just heard from maria are continuing, so officials say if you're in one of the impacted states, don't get on the roadways if you don't have to. >> it's good advice. elizabeth, thank you. >>> one man in mobile, alabama was celebrating christmas with his family when the tornado sirens went off. he took his relatives to the school where he's a teacher and they tried to ride out the storm in the fieldhouse but just minutes after they arrived, so did the twister. he says the pressure suddenly went down and everybody's ears began to pop. when it was over, some of the buildings, including his classro
, they all had affairs. what do you say to that? >> well, i don't think the idea -- the problem is that general petraeus had an affair. i think the idea and the big problem is that he was director of the cia and he walked into right into one of the most blackmailable situations you can have. it's good the u.s. found out about it before the russians or chinese. it's not that he's a general messing around, and according to the code of the justice that's not allowed. >> teetering on the edge of the fiscal cliff with just 36 days to go until tax increases kick, in the white house and congress are playing a high stakes game of let's make a deal. >> only in america believes there has to be this what i believe to be really farcical now surely -- the nature of the world is very fast moving, america has huge economic problems, heading for another fiscal cliff, everyone laughing at you from afar, the american public sick and tired of all the games going on and there are you, grover norquist, a very bright guy still resolutely saying a pledge is a pledge is a pledge, it cannot be broken wh

the past few weeks is they don't have a plan of their own that could get bipartisan support. the so-called senate bill that the majority leader keeps referring to passed with only democratic votes and despite his repeated calls for the house to call it, he knows he himself is the reason it can't happen. the paperwork never left the senate. so there's nothing for the house to vote on. as i pointed out before we took that vote back on july 25th, the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside f
from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. they say if president obama and congress don't make a deal we will almost certainly see a recession. do you buy that, steven? >> the congressional budget office is a nonpartisan group that does this and says we will in fact have an immediate rescission. they say that we come out of a short, sharp recession stronger than we would be if we didn't go into that recession in the first place. we stop borrowing money from the future to prop us up now. we have the immediate problems but in the long term we are in gets shape. that's what they are grappling this. how do they best structure this to do the least amount of damage now but get us to the good economy in the future. >> reporter: if you look up a research paper from the president's own economist you'll find in the long run we are healthier, short run, yeah, it's painful. is that what motivates some of the republicans that, you know, what are called chuckle heads, but maybe in the end they are wisdom heads. >> that is certainly part of the motivation there. the other part of the motivation, and

from the gulf that's just enhancing it. what does that mean for today? we don't have a tornado watch yet, but i anticipate we'll see one for this afternoon, especially for the areas highlighted in the brighter orange color. good risk for a moderate risk for the risk of tornadoes, hail and possible damaging winds. some of these winds could get up to 50 miles per hour or greater. if it's not enough where we have the lightning and thunder and rain we also have dense fog. make it any more dangerous to see if there e's debris blown apart. this is really tough this morning for those that are traveling. be very careful with the fog out there and snow building in later today and tonight. a real mess for this christmas. i hope everyone can stay inside as much as possible. >> lots for you to watch. you are a very busy girl on this christmas morning. all right, bonnie, thank you. >> and on this christmas morning, a community mourning another senseless shooting tragedy. this time in upstate new york where four fire fighters were shot, two fatally, after being lured into a sniper's trap on christ
home with your families if you don't have to go to work. those conditions are dangerous not just across the midwest but as we head later tonight and during evening rush and overnight hours, travel across the northeast will look a lot like that, especially interior sections, pennsylvania, upstate new york and even portions of new england. later on tonight we'll quickly see the conditions deteriorating across the northeast. this storm system is very widespread. it is a large storm and areas across the south that aren't really dealing with any precipitation across places in alabama we're still dealing with strong winds from this storm. gusts easily over 40 miles per hour. we have wind advisories across the florida panhandle, alabama, georgia, portions of the carolinas and kentucky and state of tennessee. we're seeing a lot of widespread winds even though the storm system is not producing precipitation in your area. another big concern for the storm we're looking at a risk for more severe weather. we saw 30 reports of tornados yesterday. very unusual to see that during christmas day or even
's a very good business man and he started to go, well, okay, there is a certain amount of this i don't believe actually happened and is not true and we have someone in the audience who knows a lot more about it but i think he made a judgment call which was and i think this is the same with the agencies whoever is working on it and who is being represented, are we going to get more good, he was never going to be able to control how he was portrayed in it and i'm sure if the f.b.i. and c.i.a. and military could control it, i'm sure they would. but it's a give and take. the difficult thing from an autistic point of view, how much -- from an artistic point of view, how much are you being compromised in the story you want to tell. what was interesting for us at one point that david famously had gone to the premiere of a film that he was a producer of the night before he did his interview with nixon and he was criticized about it. on the premiere of frost nixon he was interviewing blair the next day. he interviewed blair and managed to get out of that on the admission that the iraq war was
in the storm's path, tried to stock up on supplies. >> i don't anticipate power going out. but it's always a possibility, too. >> reporter: in northern california, they were socked with a third storm in three days. dumping wet weather from the bay area through the sierras. delaying inbound flights at san francisco international and causing a landslide in oakland, almost crushing one driver to death. >> i heard this bounce directly off my roof. feel pretty lucky. >> reporter: and the snow started falling here in indianapolis just a short time ago. it's expected to continue falling late into the evening. from here, the storm moves to the busy northeast corridor late tonight into tomorrow morning. and where it's expected to create major travel delays there, as well. josh? >> thanks for that, alex. >>> we're going to turn to new details about that shocking christmas crime in upstate new york. a gunman who ambushed and killed two firefighters left behind a chilling note about his deadly plan. with more, abc's linsey davis is here with the latest. this is a tough one. >> reporter: it really is.
we don't live up to here, by the way. they will like that, too. i heard the russian judges speak about it thereafter. simple things. i did not know how you'd get them out of this -- as long as you have three people, the police chief, the prosecutor, and the judge deciding cases -- you could create a situation where the general public thinks that is abnormal. this is sort of weird. how do you bring that about? that is why you have to chapters in your book. the thing i like best about our bar is a lawyer will come in and say to a judge, judge, you are wrong. you are just wrong. they will say it politely. you are wrong. the judge will feel a little sheepish. if he will decide something so obviously wrong. and the press. i know the greatest test of the independent bar and prospered the press is always criticizing you and the bar is always telling you you are wrong. they are absolutely necessary. the judge and the other country saidwe should do something about the press and the bar. i said, no, that is not the point. [laughter] the point is opposite. you cannot do without this press w
, the obama family connections, as a passive observer, my head is spinning. i don't know who is who. >> okay. that's going to be a challenge for me, to come in this book, for a couple of reasons. one, it's a fairly complicated family web. and the second reason, which is unavoidable is that kenyan names read by readers in the united states can sound, you know, different and harder to remember who is who, et cetera. so i have to be able to deal with that, ma and that's a challenge for any writer. i get some ways i done in the past. you know, essentially what's important to me is not quoting somebody. when you write a long narrative, you're not putting together a string of quotes, this person said this and this person said that. you're building a narrative story. so i would take elements from each of the people that i interviewed and weave it into the story that i tell. so some of them will appear and some of them won't. and they will appear in ways that the family tree will become understandable. but you're right, you know, there's a whole obama clan down in one section of come here, the kendu
, and in the end, it required a lot of compromise and a lot of working together. those elements don't exist much today, and i hope somehow through all of this, whatever happens now in the next couple days, i hope somehow there's an understanding that you can't go on like this. it doesn't serve the country's interest to continue this kind of gridlock. we have to make decisions about the future. dagen: well, what will change it, though? what will change it? >> well, you know, what is happening at the moment is reenforcing in everybody's mind in this country that things are not working here. i hope everybody, republicans and democrats, the president, the congress understand we've got to show people we can work together. we can make compromises. you know, we have some new people in congress who made a promise back home, we won't compromise on anything, but stand by the principles and never compromise. unfortunately, things can't work that way. you must compromise. dagen: senator, great to see you, thank you so much. >> thank you very much. good to be with you. dagen: avoiding the cold in your home s
warm, dry, and well fed, and there's others who don't. here's my chance to give back a bit. >> obviously it makes you feel good. do you tell friends, hey, it makes me feel good, why don't you join? >> and have people from work, my wife and son are here as well. everyone should come down and do their part. >> thank you so much for doing that. let's continue to walk over here. ma'am, what time did you get here this morning? >> 6 a.m. >> how many years have you done this? >> this is actually my first year. >> what do you think? >> i've never carved a turkey before. >> are you like, get me out of here? >> [ laughter ] no, it's easy. >> how do you feel being here? i know this has been around for a long time. what compels you this time? >> i figured what's a better way to give back to the community. >> very smart lady. she has the san francisco giantt going on. we'll try to talk to some of the recipients. some of them have been shy but maybe some will say thank you to glide. i know they're busy this time of year but the money they collect leading up to thanksgiving and now, hopef
and the house because politically they don't think there is any reason for congress to take votes that are just going to fail. also, they that i it will be bad for the markets, even worse for the markets to have failed votes and then go off the fiscal cliff. >> so the idea that john boehner is even having this conference call, discussing the possibility of bringing the house back into order, is that an indication that he's optimistic that there will be something that he could get a few minority, even of his party to support? >> reporter: i, you know, i like the idea of being optimistic, especially in this holiday season, but i think that probably not. i think this is really more of a housekeeping question because they have to tell their members something and the question is when they r thare they going to. you know, stranger things have happened. the other thing i'm told, when you're talking about timing here, is that the senate democrats really -- the people who run it, that they have seen this movie before, so to speak, and they know that the pressure really is only on at the 11th hour. i kno
with their wallets, buying up weapons while they still can. >> i don't think it's ever a wrong time to protect yourself and -- and exercise your second amendment rights. >> reporter: but some 30 miles away from the connecticut shooting scene, gun owners were surrendering their arms for cash. it's one of a number of gun buyback programs around the country. this event netted 64 firearms. organizers say that's not a disappointment, it's a start. brian mooar, nbc news, washington. >>> the pentagon says the commanding officer of s.e.a.l. team 4 has died in afghanistan. 42-year-old navy commander joe w. price died saturday of what u.s. military officials are calling a noncombat-related injury. they tell nbc news has death is being investigated as a possible suicide. s.e.a.l. team 4 was part of a mission to train local afghan police to fight the taliban. >>> in a possible insider attack, a nato spokesman says an american adviser was shot and killed this morning by an afghan policewoman at kabul headquarters. at least 53 international troops have been killed by afghan soldiers or police this year. >>>
of communication remain open. i don't know how much talking they did as the president was in hawaii spending time with his family and the speaker was back home in ohio, i believe. i don't know that for sure. everyone was doing their family time and not really working that significantly on something. i think there was probably some minimal conversation, but not a lot. as for the senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, i think that is a good one. a lot has been made in the past few days about him taking a higher profile role in these negotiations. while i don't like prognosticating into the future, we can look at the past in some of the previous negotiations of congress and the kind of role he has played. almost all of these talks, whether it was about government shutdown in the spring of 2011 or the debt limit debate in the summer of 2011 or the payroll tax-cut debate last year, those negotiations started at a level between the president and speaker but always broke down at that level and that pushed to the senate where harry reid and mitch mcconnell had to figure something out and get enough vote
